Wow. I’m as much opposed to electronic voting as anyone whom you will meet, but to suggest that the results demonstrate and confirm fraud is laughable on its face. Never mind that we’re talking optical scan machines here, which means the paper ballots are still around to be checked – by no means as horrendous a situation as the all-electronic voting computers that are being used elsewhere – but furthermore the website link in the article links to a results page that itself clearly shows not only a statistically significant discrepancy between the automated and manual results, but also a corresponding and statistically significant discrepancy between small and large townships. Taking these numbers at face value and assuming them to be correct, they seem to be entirely in line with both common sense and with each other. Of course there will be different results in different size and different type communities, and of course automation will be more prevalent in larger communities. I note with some degree of satisfaction that there are a number of places where Ron came in second handily. I suppose I should be surprised that, based on this data, he didn’t win 2nd place overall!?
A suggestion, Linda. Sit down. Breathe deeply. Have a cup of tea, or a wee dram even. Think about the next contest and how we can perform well there. But, please, let’s not cloud our message to the media and the public in general with yet a further sense that Paulites are kooks who can’t get a grip on the fact that we lost to Rudy. Handily.
